Are you still looking for that perfect camel coat? Then I may have something for you. I know I talked about them last year (and probably a year before that), but despite being a classic, the camel coat is something that has to be revisited every season. Our lives change and so do the figures and collections - naturally, the wardrobe has to reflect that somehow. 

Perhaps, buying a new coat every year is not for everyone. I, certainly, believe that it's best to invest into something rather special than spend the hard-earned money on a piece of clothing that will only last you a year or two... But then, again, it's all relevant... Some may only be satisfied with the ultimate MaxMara luxury, while others will be just as happy wrapping into a Mango or Uniqlo

As somebody who's experienced both, I can honestly say that the most important thing is to find a coat that makes you feel feel protected and beautiful. Something with a great fit and cut. Ideally, made from wool, cashmere or camel fabrics, and not acrylic or polyester (including the lining - definitely look for silk, cupro or viscose) . Something that gives you the most mind-melting feeling of cosiness and makes you close your eyes and smile.

Once you are ready to begging your search, remember to have fun shopping! It's not a military operation or chore. It's a search for your new best friend. In reality, we are spoilt for choice these days - the high street has so many gorgeous options that a girl can truly indulge without fear of going broke. The edit below is a great example of that, though there are some MaxMara's there, too - it would be unfair, disrespectful even, to forget about the classics...

  2. I would love to add a camel coat to my wardrobe but I have to find just the right shade as camel is a color that can wash me out.

  10. My eyes fell on the exquisite MaxMara coat immediately. And this is why, while I dream of my own camel coat, I continue to wear my mum's oversized and ultimately unflattering version from the 70s... I want my dream coat, and I had yet to find it in my price range.
